As the nation faces an imminent attack that could fuse the country and its defence systems, an elite joint services unit rises to the occasion of safeguarding the nation, but little do they know that this mission will test the limits of their determination. Shoorveer, featuring Makarand Deshpande, Manish Chaudhari, Regina Cassandra and Aadil Khan in key roles, will stream on Disney+Hotstar from today.

Speaking about the show, creator Samar Khan said in a statement, that Shoorveer was visualised with the idea of presenting an intense drama of actions and emotions. “The web series has characters that have a strong emotional connection. It’s been a dream to make a show that brings all the three forces together, and with Shoorveer, Disney+ Hotstar gave us that opportunity,” Samar adds, saying he's eagerly looking forward to seeing how the audience will react to this one.

In an interview, Regina Cassandra, who was seen last in Fingertip Season 2 (which streams on Zee5), says she loves how things have taken a turn, and OTT has a big role to play in that. “Only the digital space gives you that kind of screen time, a journey, a back story and freedom. OTT is not just plot-driven. It also engages in some situations, keeping the story connected with its characters,” she observes.

Known for films like Shiva Manasulo Shruti, Maanagaram, Nenjam Marappathillai, Kasada Thapara, and so on, Regina says OTT platforms have been a game changer for her. “Shoorveer got me excited. I loved the storyline and how it was shot. Finally, I feel my physique is being put to use because a lot of people have told me that I should do action roles. Since stereotyping is still rife in the film industry, the onus of breaking out of the image trap is on the actor.”

This is a busy year for the actor, who has four-five films in Tamil and Telugu coming up, including Shakini Dakini, expected to be released next month.

She, further, had an update on the second season premiere of Rocket Boy, which will stream on SonyLIV.

“I got a message from Nikkhil Advani that the team is done with the second season’s script. That's the most exciting news I have heard so far because everyone asks me about the second season. We had 30 percent of the show to shoot but after seeing how well the previous season had done, Abhay went back to pen and paper to figure out how to make season two as good as season one, if not better,” Regina concluded.
